Jul 23 (TheWrap.com) - The movie “Fight Club” captured the imagination of a generation, with a twist ending few saw coming and even fewer can forget. Now, Chuck Palahniuk, the author of the 1996 book the film was based on, is returning to the characters he created for a comic book sequel.
Published by Dark Horse Comics, which has been publishing official sequels to Joss Whedon‘s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel,” and “Firefly/Serenity” for years, “Fight Club 2” will be a 10-issue series illustrated by Cameron Stewart.
Palahniuk said in an interview with USA Today that the new story will take place a decade after the original, with Tyler Durden now married to Marla Singer and father to a 9-year-old son. But Palahniuk also intends to delve into the past, revealing Tyler's true origins.
Palahniuk explained the sequel as a meditation on middle age. “You're still not really happy but for different reasons,” he told USA Today. “Also, the idea that if you suppress that wild, creative part of you — that Tyler part of you — do you lose the best part of you? Sure, your life is more stable and safe, but is it a better life?”
